enLIGHTenSC, a collaborative effort between the electric cooperatives in South Carolina and the South Carolina Council on Economic Education (SC Economics), is intended to enlighten teachers on our state’s energy landscape. The lesson plans and tools on the enlightensc.org website will allow educators an opportunity to teach students about the history of electricity – how it’s generated and its effects on our environment.
“It’s so much more than just a website,” says James P. “Pat” Howle, executive vice president and CEO of Horry Electric Cooperative. “The collaborative effort includes teacher workshops throughout South Carolina in 2014 and one of them is planned for K-8 teachers in Horry County this month.”
“We’re inviting teachers to attend a free, informative one-day session at our headquarter offices on Cultra Road,” says Howle. “The session will feature enLiGHTenSC, a K-12 energy and economic education program developed for South Carolina schools and written to state standards.” Over the course of the six-hour workshop, explains Howle, attendees will be introduced to grade-specific energy lesson plans, explore the program’s website as an interactive resource, learn about the history, purpose and social implications of member-owned electric power in South Carolina and earn six credit renewal points.
Lunch will be provided.
